So based on my best Nintendo console ever poll that the SNES is easily the favourite. Next logical step is what game did you love the most. It will be tough and you will have to think hard about it. Look at all of those sweet games ………. makes you drool for the good old days doesn't it!

Start voting.

I will give my love and vote to Harvest Moon as it started a long love affair with the series.

Oh man! EarthBound, F-Zero, or Final Fantasy VI? I wish I could vote for all of them at once! I'll go with EarthBound, though.

I told you it would be tough. It is like having to choose which of your children you like most .......... no, that is easier.

Sheesh you are lazy man. Drink some more alcohol and settle in for a long think!

Perhaps I should have taken a lead from you and just put 2 options - Chono Trigger and Other Motherfucker?

Now that's a discussion to be made.  Yeah, probably spam poll.  You're right.

I voted for Super Mario All-Stars + Super Mario World which is kind of cheating. So much Mario.

Shouts out to Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Mario Kart, Super Bomberman and Killer Instinct.

Also, that's a lot of "super".

I never had a SNES so Im not tainted by nostalgia. I picked Top Gear because that game was so good they made a show about it.

All I want to know now is if there's a cap on the number of poll options you can have.

#12 Posted by NathHaw (2799 posts) -

It's always been b/w Super Metroid and Final Fantasy III (VI), but since I will be shot if I don't vote, I vote FFIII.

#13 Posted by Stonyman65 (2826 posts) -

Super Mario All-Stars, specifically the SNES pack in version that has Super Mario World included. I wish I didn't sell that..... After that... Super Mario Kart (THE BEST ONE) Star Fox, and Donkey Kong Country

I was tempted to try it. I think there are 122 options there. I just picked the best rated games plus some more obvious names. I was waiting for it to tell me to stop.

#15 Posted by RandyF (157 posts) -

Super Mario World is the greatest game of all time.

#16 Posted by FancySoapsMan (5855 posts) -

there's a lot of good games there, and Super Mario World is the best. Such a fucking great game.

#17 Posted by Video_Game_King (36272 posts) -

There were many options, but there was no Fire Emblem.

#18 Posted by awadnin (275 posts) -

EarthBound

That didn't get a western release right (I just used western releases)? I never played it, but it is easily my favourite series. I was up 'til 5.30am playing Radiant Dawn this morning.

But it's not 5:30 AM, yet.

Not on the Moon perhaps, but it was 5.30am on Saturday morning 10 hours ago as I type this. Just getting ready for a Saturday evening of more games.

Same place as Fire Emblem and Dragon Quest - in the list of legendary games we never got to play back in the day.

Hard choice between Top Gear and Uniracers, but I think Uniracers wins it on quality of multiplayer.

Super Metroid . The only game I regret not playing yet on that list is Super Mario World .

#31 Posted by joshthebear (2700 posts) -

There's definitely not enough love for Secret of Mana which makes me sad.

*clicks thread* "Well, obviously it's - wait..."

*scrolls down* "WAIT. I forgot about - "

*keeps scrolling* "Shit, wait! There's - "

... Forget it, this is impossible.

You missed out the best game, Tiny Toon Adventures: Buster Busts Loose!

#35 Posted by PDXSonic (96 posts) -

In absence of NHL 97 (yes I saw the other part but I wanted to pick a game), I picked Super Mario World. Probably the best platformer ever.

The last Metroid is in captivity the galaxy is at peace....

Seriously.

#39 Posted by Otacon (2209 posts) -

Got to stick to my Zelda fandom and vote for what is probably my favourite game of all time, A Link to the Past.

#40 Posted by D0tti (786 posts) -

Other for me, even though I looooooove Super Metroid, DK games and Zelda. International Superstar Soccer is my "best SNES game ever".

#41 Posted by MrCaptain (369 posts) -

B.O.B, aint getting better than that.

#42 Posted by buft (3320 posts) -

Super mario world, i played that game for years, so much to collect so many different and varied levels, getting the super challenging levels unlocked and that jubilation you feel when its finally 100% complete. no other game influenced my love of video games as much as this one.

i have rebought this game several times in my life on the GBA and going so far as to buy a snes with all stars just to get my hands back on this a few years back

Where is Bill Lamberts Combat Basketball?

DH.

No, that wasn't short for dickhead - just Other. Combat Basketball? That would be less boring than the normal kind.

#45 Posted by redefaulted (2802 posts) -

Jesus Christ, man. Super Mario World, pretty much because that's all I can remember playing on that system for the longest time. Maybe Harvest Moon?

#46 Posted by SmilingPig (1341 posts) -

Earthbound!

#47 Posted by DeF (4958 posts) -

@Contrarian: whaa? you put something like seaQuest in there but leave out Terranigma?

contrary (ha!) to what you said in the other thread, we probably don't think alike after all :P

According to developer Quintet, Terranigma sold 200,000 copies in Japan. Jeremy Parish of 1UP.com's Retronautspodcast described it as the game with the best reputation in Quintet's creation trilogy. He remarked that the series was "full of solid gameplay, great music and surprisingly deep story themes", and thatTerranigma exceeded both Soul Blazer and Illusion of Gaia, "making it a long-coveted classic". Parish also expressed his wish for the title to be released on theWii's Virtual Console download service. Kei Kuboki of the video game magazine GameFan described it as the developer's "best (...) effort", and as being "among the [Super Nintendo's] most memorable titles".

I feel suitably ashamed of myself right now. After reading up on it, I want to play it. Never got a US release which is very odd.

Link to the past for me. Love that game.

A Link to the Past, great game and first game I remember playing.
